Lightweight Wheels

Project Brief.

Lightweight Wheels, a German brand started in the 1980s, brings us the absolute best in carbon bicycle wheels.  They introduced the world to the first full carbon spoked bicycle wheel in 1996; that same year those wheels saw victory at the Tour de France.   Their design was so forward thinking, so technologically advanced that they have had NO major revisions since their launch.

The Obermayer, named for one of the founders, is the stiffest lightest wheel in the category of light stiff wheels.  It is the pinnacle of bicycle wheels and weighs in at 935 grams for the pair.  The pair shown above is a one off show wheel that was custom painted by AMG Mercedes, the Obermayer Schwarz Edition.  This particular wheelset has been built using Ceramic Speed Bearings.
